Foggy, Froggy and Soggy

Day 326

We spent the morning fishing in the tidal creed off the dock. It was hot with the heat index hovering around 109°F.

Not much luck catching anything edible although I did catch a shark and a small sting ray. Neither of which I would attempt to free by myself. Luckily our son-in-law and hubby were there to help. I am okay putting live bait on my hook and removing small fish, but not the dangerous stuff.

Our son-in-law took the kayak out to the small island created at low tide. He was using the cast net to cast for bait.

Unfortunately a storm came up and we all took a break until the storm blew over. We tried a little more fishing but the drizzling rain and the cooler temperatures signaled time to call it for the day.

After a nice dinner of homemade tacos we did some crafts and then played a couple of games of Uno which was lots of fun.

Three of the German Short Haired Pointers are here, so after dinner there was a huge pile of dogs and people intertwined relaxing and watching a little TV. Our granddaughter made peanut butter balls and coconut balls for snacks.

After a good night’s sleep we had a relaxed morning. Now it is time to pack up and head home. It’s been nice being with family and enjoying the water.

  1. That dog looks comfy, Maggie!
    Only 67 f here today, and no fishing for me. 🙂
    I spent most of the day at the car dealership, having front springs replaced. 😦
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Car maintenance does not sound quite as enjoyable, Pete.

      The dogs were fun although they missed their fenced back yard where they could romp and play without being on a leash. Their top running speed can be up around 40mph so exercise is key for them.The GSP breed are called “Velcro dogs” because they are very attached to their humans.

    1. Teagan, it was a beautiful and relaxing couple of days. The stingray was small, it still has that powerful stinging tail. The shark was 16-18 inches long and really put up a fight. I am just glad the guys were there when it came time to release them.


  2. Sounds like a lot of great family adventures. I’m SO jealous you were able to cuddle with the beautiful dog. SO lonely for those times. Love u.

    1. Yes, Marge. Small sharks roam the tidal creeks for food. I am not sure what kind of shark it was. I was just glad to have it off my hook and released back into the water.


  3. Reminds me of when I lived on a houseboat and just fished off the front porch! I dreaded catching carps! Huge and ugly. But they made great crawdad bait.
